    Hi All,

    A couple of questions if possible.

    When flying, the quad will not go in a straight line. It drifts to the right, no matter which way the wind is blowing. Is this the compass problem?

    Also, when flying forward, the quad descends quite considerably. Is this normal? I would say over 10m of forward travel, it will descend 2m. It makes low level flying a PITA.

    Thanks for your help.

    Have you tried calibrating your controller ?

    Does it drift right as in the video linked below?

    Um, yes?
    Is that in the main phantom software?
    All the switches and joysticks are doing as described in the software and go back to 0 when not being touched.

    Is there somewhere else I should calibrate it?

    This started for me a couple of days ago.


    Yes. Exactly like that.
